William and Kate's tour of Australia: holiday like royalty Down Under

If holidaying like the royals is what you're after, the amazing and luxury month-long tour of Australia with a royal twist could be just the ticket – with a price tag of under £350,000. The once-in-a-lifetime adventure has all of Australia's gems on its map, including many visited by the popular British royals, without the official engagements that William and Kate took part in.

Fly first class from Heathrow to Australia, enjoy transfers by chauffeured limousines, explore the Great Barrier Reef islands by private yacht, inspect scenic wonders by helicopter, travel Australia by privately chartered aircraft – and even catch a seaplane to lunch.

Stay in the most luxurious hotels Australia has to offer. Spend the night where the Duke and Duchess were for their romantic night under the stars with Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, in sight at Longitude 131. Enjoy the very finest suites at the Park Hyatt overlooking Sydney Harbour.


Soak up the luxuries of Lizard island resort on the Great Barrier Reef, lounge in the 5-star eco-resort Wolgan Valley in the Blue Mountains, and lap up the beach resort of the Saffire Freycinet on the coast of Tasmania.

Dine in some of the country's most iconic restaurants, watch a performance at the Sydney Opera House and visit Sydney's Taronga Zoo, where Prince George fell in love with a bilby, on this first-class tour fit for royalty.
